There are smaller bars in Warsaw, but finding them would require a magnifying glass. Nestled inside a small nook on Hoża, the mousehole dimensions of Aura are tempered by the tall ceilings and Moroccan-style design: dark, mysterious and intriguing, there’s something decadent and delicious about it all.
It’s a sentiment that extends to the drinks, many of which incorporate Aura’s exhaustive collection of bourbons. Promoting the heavy use of swivelly chrome stools and Persian rugs, the heavy hint of retro glam is balanced out by a crowd that, at times, strays into the head turning category – but that’s what happens when you find yourself recommended in the pages of Vogue. Setting foot inside this secretive den of iniquity, you understand the fuss.
